This certificate program is designed to provide English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction to enhance a student’s existing knowledge, training, and job skills and further the student’s ability to communicate in English and pursue employment opportunities in the United States.
The focus of the program is on a) speaking and listening comprehension; b) vocabulary and reading comprehension; and c) grammar and writing skills.
